I took this pic of Texas Dolly during the 2006 WSOP Main Event
Rumors have been trickling in the last couple of hours of the arrest of Doyle Brunson which originated at Poker Network and has since then made the rounds. Texas Dolly pinched by the SEC? FBI or DOJ? There is nothing confirmed as of yet.

11:43am... I talked to a source at PokerStars who cannot confirm the rumor.
12:04pm... I called Todd Brunson to confirm the rumor. I got voicemail and left a message.
1:36pm... Gambling911 calls Bullshit! on the rumor.
3:01pm... Gary Carson wrote:
If he has been arrested it has nothing to do with online gambling. He should be arrested for securities fraud and I wouldn't at all be surprised if he has been. I certainly expect him to be arrested for securities fraud eventually, for that fraudulent offer he made last summer for WPT... More3:45pm... According to a Gambling911.com report... Doyle Brunson is alive and has not been arrested. I need a couple of more sources to confirm this.
4:20pm... New rumor that has surfaced... Dan Michalski from Pokerati is indeed the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby. Discuss.
